    Thank you!
    (My fault. Wrong setting of screen enlargement. Made me think that pop-up window would end one category above...)

    I never saw these brushes over here. I tried to find out whether they are legal here. So far I could not find anything precise, but hints to the contrary.

    Alternatively one can use high-voltage ionisation instead.

    Any cleanroom supply will have plug-in ionized guns that will hook up to a low-pressure air line. The electronics tech industry uses all kinds of
    such gadgets and special materials. I don't know about EU sources, but around here in the heart of techie land, such stuff is readily available
    from multiple sources. But the key to this anywhere is probably to look that direction rather than to photo stores. Another excellent collection of sources would be used lab or printing gear outlets. Sometimes really nice stuff can be had downright free, since many traditional pro photo labs and printing houses have gone out of business for one reason or another. The average camera store in this day and age probably wouldn't
    even know what you were talking about.

    Most ionizers over here come from techie land I guess.

    Thank goodness I found this thread. I was about to buy a refill for my Staticmaster and about had a heart attack when I saw the price. No thanks. I'll be trying the ilford cloths.

    Good to know - unfortunately not available from your local distributor so have added a couple to my next B&H order.

    I don't think you will be disappointed. It is low tech but works very well and looks as if it will last forever

    I have a 1" Staticmaster brush I bought back in the early "80's" and when I first used it I could actually see the dust jump, ever so slightly, from the negative to the brush hairs themselves. Of course the radioactive charge has long expired and all I have now is a 1" brush. With refills costing an arm, leg and left testicle it looks like I'll always have just a 1" brush. The cost increase is far beyond the cost of inflation and I wouldn't care if I had more money than brains, I still wouldn't buy a refill knowing I'm being taken advantage of. There's a sucker born everyday, but this guy wasn't born yesterday. I'll try the Ilford cloth or just keep using my fine sable brush and blower. JW
